I’ve been at Rapides High School since the 7th grade and now I’m graduating. I’ve always felt at home at Rapides and if I switched schools I always went back home. I loved my time at the school and have made so many friends. I’m thankful that we had the best teachers to get us were we are now. I’ll be forever grateful for them, and will forever be a Mustang!

What I like about Rapides High School is that whatever comes our way, everyone is willing to help each other out. Also, the unity of the school is what makes it unique. The teachers and staff are excellent, and the overall environment is somewhere every student should want to be. I am a senior this year, so I am saddened that I will be departing soon. I love my school, and say that with pride. I will always remember the memories that I have had ever since I started as a freshman. Leaving will be the most emotional part, departing from my friends and my close teachers. Overall, I appreciate what the school has offered for me and I will cherish it forever.
I love Rapides High School because of the amazingly humble and down-to-earth atmosphere, and the wonderful teachers and staff make all students fell right at home.
